When Worlds Collide

So there I am, cutting my six year old's long dirty fingernails, a horrid task because she loathes it so much she runs away and screams and cries, but she's finally settled down so I'm doing a nice tidy job, when out of her mouth comes "you're making it look like I have hobo fingers!"

The first thing that went through my mind was "she's been reading The Bloggess?"

I composed myself and asked her what hobo fingers were and where she'd heard about them. "iCarly" said she. "iCarly bites her fingernails to the nub and she's got hobo fingers."

Okay then. Maybe Jenny can find the hobo fingers she needs in the dumpster outside the iCarly sound stage.

C'mon, what six year old *isn't* reading The Bloggess?

iCarly is ALL about the hoboes. All the writers are probably reading The Bloggess.

LOL! I knew it was from iCarly...hobos have been a hot topic here, too.

I just went and read that Bloggess link, which immediately brought to mind an interesting tidbit from last week's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. In Korea they use little sausages to work their iPhones when it is too cold to take their gloves off. Maybe she could try that.

As for iCarly - WTF? Why are you watching that?!

This is almost totally unrelated, but when I worked at a bookstore a disgruntled customer once called me a hobo.

Jenny, the Bloggess said...

That's it. I'm suing iCarly.

Wait a minute, I'm barely old enough to read The Bloggess.

I feel old and out of it. What's iCarly? Is it an app for the iPhone? Cause I don't have one of those...

Gwen said...

I was wondering how to use my iPhone in the winter. Aha! hobo sausages, it is then.

The hobo alliance is going to start suing people for defamation of character any day now!
